Man, I thouht I knew a lot about football. You guys are good! Thanks for the great read. I've only been here a short while (finheaven, that is), and this is by far the best post I've come across. Well done CK!
Good read CK.
I think your prediction is going to be way off though, I believe the game will be close until 4th quarter when our running game and the heat will whip their *** and we'll score a couple of late scores:
Dolphins 27 Jets 13
In Philbin I trust:
- As offensive coordinator (OC) of Green Bay from 07-10, his offenses ranked in the top 10 in both total yards and scoring.
- Green Bay has reached the playoffs in three of Philbinís four seasons as OC.
- As OC at Harvard (97-98), the Crimson established 15 offensive records.
- Philbin spent four seasons (90-93) at Allegheny College, highlighted by two undefeated regular seasons and an NCAA Division III national championship in 90.
Thanks for the read, i predict you will be doing it for a living one day, good job by the mods noticing your talent and giving you that type of exposure.
As far as the game theres one things that scares the hell out of me and that is a supertalented football player in farve that has a mountain of a chip on his shoulder.
I actually watched and saw with my own eyes how that man turns up his focus and concentration when he wants to and boy does he want to. I like how u unfolded the game and i agree, i think our guys will be hyped a little too much, however i also think this team is different then any other i have seen playing in this town.
I do not think the preseason was an abberation, it was who we are and are going to be, i just hope we can catch up to the speed of the game before its to late
So, I call it a conditional 3rd.
Something else to consider. I live in Viking land (unfortunately). Because they played the Packers 2X a year the Vikes figured that Favre would throw at least two passes a game that should be intercepted. They absolutely counted on it and were determined to make the picks when the opportunity presented itself. Needless to say, they did pick him many times. Favre will try force the ball if he feels he needs to. It should be even more difficult for him in NY as he shouldn't be on the same wavelength with his receivers yet. I'm hopeful we make the most of our two pick opportunities on Sunday. They could be the difference in the game.
Just win.... please!
